This file is a seed to analyze the needed number of Chinese lexemes for basic understanding of Chinese newspaper articles.

For first instance, knowing a first sentence composed from 11 most frequently used Chinese characters amounts to 16% of Chinese characters in an online article. For second instance, in additional to the first sentence, knowing a second sentence composed from 17 next most frequently used Chinese characters accumulatively amounts to 25% of Chinese characters in an online article. For third instance, a third sentence of another next 28 most frequently used Chinese characters accumulatively amounts to 34% of Chinese characters in an online article.
